About Anti-Aging Facial
What Is an Anti-Aging Facial?

An anti-aging facial is much like a "regular" facial. The critical difference is that with an anti-aging facial, the products used are intended to target the signs again. So, for example, if you are hoping to diminish the look of wrinkles or lessen the presence of age spots, then an anti-aging facial may be the ideal skincare solution for you.

Collagen is mainly responsible for the skin's elasticity and overall suppleness. As the skin ages, it tends to lose its elasticity. The aesthetician focuses on stimulating collagen production with an anti-aging facial, thereby giving your skin a smoother and plumper look. The products and techniques used during your facial will be geared to achieve this goal.

Benefits of anti-aging facials

Among the primary benefits of an anti-aging facial is that it is meant to make the skin look younger and refreshed. Some of the other benefits that you will experience with this type of facial include:

  • Improved collagen production
  • Removal of dead skin cells
  • Restore skin's tone and texture
  • Even out the age spots that may be appearing

In essence, you might think of an anti-aging facial as working to thicken the skin, and in this way, it can make the skin look more radiant and lustrous.

Different Kinds of Anti-Aging Facials

Many spas will offer different anti-aging facials geared toward solving a specific issue or addressing a particular concern. The various facial types will necessitate other products and techniques to achieve maximum results.

Exfoliating facials

The skin contains dead skin cells that can, in turn, make the skin appear duller and prematurely aged. An exfoliating facial targets this outer layer and removes it. Removing those dead skin cells reveals the newer skin cells underneath and stimulates cell production. This will lend itself to more youthful radiance. Generally, the aesthetician will use certain products to trigger a chemical-based exfoliation. From a mechanical/technique standpoint, the facial involves brushes and more abrasive tools that help remove that dead skin. In some instances, this anti-aging facial may apply a light chemical peel.

Collagen facials

As mentioned, collagen gives the skin its suppleness and elasticity. A collagen facial is thus designed to stimulate enhanced collagen production and, in this way, help the skin to look younger. Many collagen facials will involve retinol, which is ideal for boosting collagen production in the skin.

Hydrating facials

One of the reasons that wrinkles form and why skin does start to look older is that it lacks hydration. As we age, moisture in the skin decreases, which is why a hydrating facial as an anti-aging facial option can be highly beneficial. Especially if you have dry or scaly/cracking skin, then a hydrating facial may be the perfect solution for you. Hyaluronic acid will generally be a part of a hydrating facial, as is a mask. Masks boost the hydration in the skin, and they also help to lock that moisture in for some time after the facial is complete.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion may also be part of an anti-aging facial. With microdermabrasion, the aesthetician will use a unique wand that emits crystals. The rod's action in conjunction with the crystals helps to smooth skin, remove dead skin cells and reveal a more lustrous and vibrant skin surface. Many spas will offer microdermabrasion as an add-on to an anti-aging facial to optimize the total facial experience and thus get the best result possible.

What to Expect During Your Anti-Aging Facial?

As with a traditional facial, an anti-aging facial is composed of steps. Before your facial, you will meet with the aesthetician to assess your skin type, discuss your needs and concerns that you may have. If you do have any underlying skin conditions or are on medication for a skin condition, you may want to speak with your doctor first, before getting any form of skincare treatment.

The first part of the anti-aging facial will involve a deep cleansing. Sure, we all wash our faces, but you'd be surprised at the dirt and debris a regular washing can leave behind. After the cleansing phase, you will receive an exfoliation. This is where a more abrasive product is used to remove dead skin cells and prepare the skin's surface to absorb the nutrients and minerals to follow. Some anti-aging facials may also have an extraction component where the aesthetician will remove any blackheads using a unique tool.

With an anti-aging facial, especially, there is usually a mask applied toward the end of the process. Serum and cream will also be applied—these products are designed to address the needs of mature skin. You will also receive a message of the facial area, neck, shoulders, and potentially scalp in some instances. This will depend on the spa-offered services.

People wonder if they can perform an anti-aging facial at home. And while you certainly can, the results are usually not the same. The products you can buy for a DIY facial are plentiful, but diluted for safety purposes. However, getting that professional anti-aging facial is going to result in more intense effects and longer-lasting effects as well.

Anti-aging facials are designed to make skin look and feel younger—this is the bottom line. There are numerous facial types that you can book at a spa. Still, if you are specifically concerned about wrinkles, fine lines, skin dullness, age spots, or any issue associated with aging skin, then you most definitely want to stick with an anti-aging facial. An anti-aging facial is designed to boost collagen production, spur cell regeneration, and help to even out skin tone and texture—these all contribute to a more youthful skin appearance.
